two quick links

The first one is for everyone, the second one just for GNOME-rs…

  • 37 Signals on why allowing fear to irrationally infect your thinking and planning is terrible. Really good article. I’m trying to be less fearful and more optimistic myself, so this was powerful stuff to me.
  • Nigel Tao has an interesting mockup up, based on throwing away basically all of the desktop except a web browser. On the one hand, a good example of how to think outside the box and how to make the browser more friendly to web apps (it throws away most browser chrome, for example); on the other hand, as he points out, you still need to play local music and handle local peripherals like cameras. So we likely can’t go all-web, all-the-time, quit yet.
